our neighbour, was once the "most beautiful prison in
the world" and was the original of 'Midnight Express'
infamy. Now a five-star hotel, you can pay from $270

And our apartments:
Designed to be comfortable for two to six people, these
spacious, fully equipped suites have their own
kitchens and bathrooms, street doors, tv & phone, a
queen-sized double bed, two sofa beds and two armchairs.
A base for a business visit? A home away from home?
